3 month old with crusty eyes

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

nak

quick question ladies- my dd2 has caught our miserable sinus cold.  She is now getting a ton of crap coming out of her eyes.  I'm doing warm compresses, boobie milk, and pulsitilla.  Other than the medicated drops the ped will prescribe, any other suggestions?  She had a check up today, and everything seems ok, but I'm def doing the garlic/mullen drops for preventative measures.  I'm reluctant to start squirting salt water in her nose as she can still breathe, and I don't want to irritate the membranes.  Has anyone had good luck with that in a baby who's so little?

Big thanks!

I think you are doing everything you can! I wouldn't do the salt spray since she is so little.  Just nurse nurse nurse and her eyes will clear up when the cold does!
